RE: How many password cracking programs are there?



I know Dave Kleiman already mentioned it, but take a look at a chapter
from Mark Burnett's book (tech edited by Dave) dealing with this and
similar issues:

It is a good overview of password cracking but I didn't see
that it addressed anything about strong passphrases.

In order to understand how to protect a windows computer
from password
cracking software, it would seem necessary to understand how the
current password cracking programs work. But, aren't there
lots and
lots and lots of password cracking programs? There's tens of
thousands of virus programs - is there not a large number
of password
cracking programs?

Thanks.
